Yes I am, I will admit I am naïve in this whole area, but it just doesn't make sense to me! Ha! But people are saying that some DA teams are on a lower level to other DA programs. So if you cant beat the local competition/current flight 1 teams, why on earth would you compete nationally? Conquer your own back yard before you travel to someone else's turf, surely? The whole concept of the DA program is for the elite kids right? There shouldn't be dozens of teams unless they can all compete at the top top level, which people on this forum are disputing.
